Private Residence Ordos
The project attempts to translate the notion of essentiality and purity that the site offers. In sharp contrast to the rugged open landscape, both abstract and infinite, the house floor plan adheres to a pure form, a monolithic cube, which stands upon the land as if it were an archaic stone shaped by the forces of the wind. This clearly defined volume sensibly adapts to its surroundings through two features: a patio and a roof line. Put together, the entire architectural layout is extremely clear: a clean-cut exterior reveals the complexity of the visual and spatial relationships that take place inside the house.
